The British Accreditation Council (BAC) accredits LBTC. This accreditation means that LBTC chose to seek external accreditation and receive a review on its processes to demonstrate that it is a high quality organisation. In order to achieve BAC accreditation, LBTC had to demonstrate that it meets BAC’s rigorous standards in four inspection areas:
- Management, Staffing and Administration
- Teaching, Learning and Assessment
- Participant Welfare
- Premises and Facilities
The inspection report is available in the Directory and Inspection Reports section on the BAC website – http://www.the-bac.org
BAC was established by the UK’s Department of Education and the British Council in 1984 to oversee independent further and higher education in the UK. It is a registered charity and a not for profit organisation. As a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE), BAC has been externally assessed on its organisation’s standards and processes. BAC currently accredits more than 230 institutions across 19 countries.
Furthermore, BAC accreditation is recognised by UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI), part of the Home Office, as a qualifying requirement for institutions wishing to enrol students on Short-Term Study Visas: students from outside the EEA will only secure a UK Short-Term Study Visa if they have a genuine offer from an accredited institution.
